Re: Denmark Strait and RN Articles of War

... I have answered above. No mayter how much you quote yourself doesn't change the fact that pow was under fire and her captain decided to escape. Many other British ships have been in bad situations (Glowworm anybody ?) and still theu honored the tradition.. Or, if you like examples with hurt cap...

You have just seen HMS Hood blow up, now you are heading straight for the wreckage of this ship at 30 knots. What do ...

Re: Denmark Strait and RN Articles of War

Then get back to us. :ok: ... Capt Leach wrote nothing of his own damage suffered in his report, indicating the decision to withdraw was taken BEFORE Prince of Wales received her first hit. In fact, I do not think him or Holland were the pet monkeys many articles seem to indicate. They probably tho...

Re: Denmark Strait and RN Articles of War

Hello everybody, @ Wordy, you wrote : The image the APPROXIMATE angles of the hits, so there is no way to determine exactly what course the POW was on at that second. Your statement is incorrect. Bye Antonio :D No it isn't an incorrect statement. It's impossible to say that POW was course the POW d...

Re: Denmark Strait and RN Articles of War

Hello everybody, I think that if a crusade is noticeable in this thread is the one that the defenders of those officers are doing in line of principle despite the evidences only because they were Royal Navy Senior Officers, only because they were British. I do not see anything wrong from my side on...

Re: Denmark Strait and RN Articles of War

@Wordy: and why have you ignored all the facts presented by Antonio and why do you continue to believe a version of facts that is simply not credible anymore ? :negative: By the way, I see from your avatar that you liked the book on the life of Capt.Leach ("in the highest Tradition of the RN..........

Re: Denmark Strait and RN Articles of War

Hello everybody, @ Steve Crandell, you wrote : Do we really expect everyone to be consistent through all this? Look at a typical crime scene. If you have three witnesses, you will probably have three different versions of what happened. Correct and I agree ! But with acceptable tolerances and witho...

Re: Denmark Strait and RN Articles of War

All, Since Antonio is reluctant to answer I shall supply the Suffolk-Hood distance as 26 miles from his inverted green triangle. If Suffolk can see Hood at 26 miles then Norfolk can see Bismarck at 16, or 18 or 19 miles and Hood and PoW can see Bismarck at 19 miles. We don't need extrapolating from...

Re: Denmark Strait and RN Articles of War

You may have noticed, by reading backwards all the pages, that I have never used such a definition neither that I intend to reach the point to judge anybody since I wrote it already several times. Neither I intend to realize precisely why and how they did it ( reasons, persons involved, responsibil...

Re: Denmark Strait and RN Articles of War

Hello everybody, @ Wordy, if everybody acted as expected as you are stating, why they modified the data and the timings ? Why they created "The Plot" for the Hood Second Board of Inquiry that way ? Bye Antonio :D Well I'm pretty confident it wasn't done to cover up cowardice.

Re: Denmark Strait and RN Articles of War

At this point in the thread I am struggling to see what else can be achieved by analysing every second in such minute detail. It would seem that hours’ worth of research is being thrown at every minute of the battle and that far too much thought, criticism and unfortunately bias is being directed at...

Re: Germans in WWII having Iowa class battleships

Yeah but I'd imagine the training and evelating speed on a 20mm would've been greater than a larger 40mm mount?
